Hello everyone. Welcome along to our live coverage of the Carabao Cup and Liverpool’s trip to Preston tonight.
A place in the quarter-finals is up for grabs tonight as Jurgen Klopp’s men make a short trip up the M6.
In their way will be a Championship side in Preston looking to bring them down to earth after Sunday’s amazing result at Old Trafford.
We’re expecting a bit of a shuffling of the pack from Liverpool tonight and that could give Preston a sniff at a giant-killing.
Kick-off is at 7.45pm local time and I’ll have team news for you very shortly.
Sit back and relax, it should be a good night.
